Iran’s human rights council criticizes Riyadh’s executions

August 26, 2018

TEHRAN – Iranian Judiciary’s High Council of Human Rights on Saturday voiced deep concern about a possible move by Saudi Arabia to execute five political activists, describing as “unacceptable” Riyadh’s policy to crack down on the “truth-seeking” activists.

A recent report about Saudi public prosecutor’s request that five political activists, including Israa al-Ghomgham and her husband, be sentenced to death is extremely regrettable and worrying, the council said in a statement, Tasnim reported.

“The policy of Saudi Arabia in suppressing open-minded and truth-seeking Muslims on charge of terrorism is ridiculous and unacceptable,” it added.
